How a Zipscreen will make your life easier

July 21, 2015

We have been talking at length recently about the benefits that dedicated outdoor blinds can offer your home. Today, we’re going to be discussing the great properties of zipscreen: The latest, state-of-the-art gliding system. Zipscreen is made right here in Australia from COLORBOND® materials. They will provide you with the ability to transform your outdoor areas into a very special gathering place.

The Zipscreen tracking system is more commonly used with alfresco blinds or screen blinds, making these types of blinds much easier to use. On top of this great accessibility, they are also durable under the extreme conditions of the Australian climate. Below, we’ve listed some of the finer benefits that the zipscreen blinds made by The Blinds Spot Co will offer you. We custom make our own zipscreen roller blinds in Melbourne, and can fit them to any sized window.

One, easy gliding movement

The design of the zipscreen system makes it the most convenient and easiest way to use blinds. To pull up or down requires nothing more than a simple arm gesture, making them ideal for outdoor areas. Zipscreen can be used along with a wide variety of different types of blinds, too. The ability to block out or screen the sun’s light quickly and easily is one that is simply far too good to pass up on.

A perfect fit, everytime

Zipscreen is fitted onto the side of the window or open area where they are being placed, rather than the ceiling like many other gliding systems. Because of this, a zipscreen blind will perfectly fit the area which it has been attached to, without any gaps. This makes these types of blinds ideal for entertainment areas, where they will protect your verandah or patio from the rain or wind.

Suiting many different purposes

The ease of which zipscreen can be attached to nearly any type and size of window or open area makes them perfectly suited for all kinds of purposes. We’ve seen zipscreen being used as a standard window covering, covering the length of patio areas, and even being used over doorways as an alternative to a fly screen. This versatility in use has seen zipscreen become highly popular as a result.

Great for businesses

Zipscreen offers businesses seeking easy to use commercial blinds a great solution for their window covering options. As discussed in our previous point, these blinds will serve a wide variety of purposes. For restaurants or bars, in particular, having a dedicated beer garden or outdoor dining space that can be easily sheltered from bad weather is highly desirable. Zipscreen can be made to any size, and will be a great suit for these kinds of areas.
